John Aadland, a past president of the Blue Ridge Astronomy Club, described the moon's possible hue as "blood red," but wasn't sure if that is what's in store for tonight's show.

His club plans to view the eclipse from the Forest Library parking lot, located at 15583 Forest Road, starting at about 6 p.m.
"We'll see what happens, but assuming the skies are clear or at least partly cloudy, we'll be out there," he said, adding people will have some telescopes and binoculars and the group will try to answer questions.

John Aadland, a member of the Blue Ridge Astronomy Club, said "people are interested in what they can see" and also in the idea of "being part of nature."

"The main thing you need is curiousity and a place to look up," said Aadland."Once you've got that, you can get started."
In fact, Aadland cautions against investing in telescopes until a person is knowledgeable about the subject: "Just go out (and observe) with binoculars and your naked eyes."
Aadland does recommend beginners use a basic book on astronomy, such as "Turn Left at Orion," by Guy Consolmagno, Dan M. Davis and others, to help them find constellations or other celestial objects of interest.
The long hours of daylight and hazy weather make summer a less than optimal season for stargazing, according to Aadland, who said the clearer cool skies of fall and winter are best for observing the stars.
Those undeterred by hazy skies should search for a viewing area "away from bright lights," said Aadland, who recommended Sunset Field, located off the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Indeed, according to Aadland, "people get interested in astronomy at all ages," pointing out that his son Matthew first showed an interest in the subject at the tender age of 4.
Now 13, Matthew said he is the "only kid" who attends Blue Ridge Astronomy Club meetings regularly, although he always tries to make other young people feel welcome.The club now averages 30-35 members.
Astronomy draws some people with specialized interests, said John Aadland.
